Life of Late ~ 12.23.16 {and a special discount code} … Merry Merry

Hello from the WEST COAST BABY!  It hasn’t been that long (only a few months) since I was home for a family vacation and for my friend’s wedding, but it feels good none the less. So while I’m out here hiking everywhere and eating all of the acai bowls, enjoy these articles.

^^ Oh and seeing these goons who are all grown up and in college!  Aren’t we adorable?

Everyone complains about the holidays and the weight from all of those parties.  Sure sugar and booze are a flowing everywhere you go but that doesn’t always have to be the case.  Take it from Well and Good who prove it’s possible to throw a sober holiday party.  Some may claim that isn’t as fun but to each their own, right?  I’m sure your body will be thanking you the next day, that’s for sure.

Running.  People ask me why I do it.  Well, besides the fact that I love to eat, it scientifically is proven to clear your mind.  Don’t believe me?  Read it straight from the source – the NY Magazine.  In high school when I was going through my teenage drama phase, my mom would highly encourage me to burn a little steam by running.  Of course moms always know what to say (though I didn’t want to believe it then) 😉

Let’s be real.  When people ask what my dream job would be, it would be a personal organizer.  100% serious and so I’m absolutely in love with this blog “Life in Jeneral” and instagram.  EVERYTHING IS SO PRETTY!  When I was little, I would go over to friend’s houses (ok maybe even in junior high) and organize.  Hello awkward child right here.  Also hi, hire me?

Now that you have such a glowing image of me and my past, anyone care to date me? 😉  Here’s a post from one of my favorite bloggers who reminds me that we deserve to be pursued and to find someone who will appreciate/understand all of your quirks (or so I hope).

^^ I woke up at 5 to make the 5:30 workout…then snoozed until 5:30.  In the end I was glad that I made it to my last NP_NYC workout of 2016!

It’s almost 2017 and so people have started to reflect on 2016.  Since my space isn’t too political or sappy (most of the time), let’s stick to humor.  What was this “Damn Daniel” video?  I finally looked it up online and watching it on Ellen had me in stitches.  Somewhat “Napoleon Dynamite” humor but still, crazy how something like this took off!  Also it reminded me of my cousins, which made it all the better.

I love Williams Sonoma (so so much) but this post about “The Haters Guide to the William Sonoma Catalog” is hilarious.  Sometimes I do question the price tag on some of those items…

Still don’t know what to ask for or gift?  How about some help redecorating?  Laurel & Wolf is an amazing new interior design service that enables you to work with top designers and help transform your space!   Even better – a SPECIAL DISCOUNT for rooms ($99-$199 offers) through the end of the year!  Gift away my friends, gift away. (If you didn’t catch that…click here)

Oh and as I’ve said again and again – YOU DO YOU.  Words of wisdom from Sometimes Always Never blog to just keep going!
